Santa Tecla is an elevated point in Galicia, in the end of Minho River. Spetacular views and nice history. If you have time walk through the place and then hit the road towards Baiona

If you are at the harbor, it will take you around 1h30 up the hill. Driving will take you around 15 minutes, and you can park the car before the paid area.

No vi ninguno la verdad, pero es todo al aire libre! Salvando la ermita y el restaurante no creo que hubiera problema, pero casi mejor llamar al 986 614 546 para cerciorarse. Siento no ser de más ayuda! Un saludo.
